About Polystyrene Foam

Polystyrene is synthesized by the polymerization of several units of styrene monomers. Its lightweight and moisture resistant features provide insulation and buoyancy. The particle foam in the form of expandable polystyrene (EPS) and extruded polystyrene (XPS) rigid foam are the two commonly used polystyrene foams. These are used in several applications such as building, construction, and packaging.

The analysts forecast the global polystyrene foam market to grow at a CAGR of 9.86% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: – Global Polystyrene Foam Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global polystyrene foam market: Alpek, The Dow Chemical Company, Kaneka Corporation, Synthos, and Total.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ACH Foam Technologies, BASF, NOVA Chemicals, SIBUR, StyroChem, SUNPOR KUNSTSTOFF, and Synbra Holdings.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing number of manufacturers in APAC. Lower supply constraints in Europe, following the establishment of new rigid foam production facilities in China, is likely to restrict the production, thereby reducing the cost of the product. Established manufacturers in APAC provide high capacity utilization to cater to the growing demand from South America and Europe.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is recyclable and environment friendly nature of EPS. Expanded polystyrene is easy to recycle and process. In applications where its recyclability is considered economically viable, it can be done in either open loop or closed loop processes. The recycled EPS can be used in various new applications such as packaging, building and construction, automotive, marine, electrical and electronics, and sports and leisure.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is fluctuating crude oil prices. The manufacturing of polystyrene foams requires raw materials, which are acquired from the oil and gas industry in the form of gasoline. The fluctuations in crude oil prices have a severe impact on the prices of the raw materials, which affect the costs of the polystyrene foam.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
